Mark my words

TTP's Top Tips – January

Welcome to the first of our monthly top tips column. Each month we’ll be looking at an industry related topic, trend or simply sharing something that we’ve found interesting.

And to kick us off we’re taking a quick look at the most commonly used proofreading marks and what they mean.

Proof marks are globally recognised symbols and squiggles that are used when correcting draft documents and typeset pages. It’s a way of making what can be a painful process far simpler and efficient, helping to improve consistency and miscommunication.

Although proof marks aren’t as widely used as they once were, they are still useful tools whether marking corrections on paper or electronically, and you never know when you might need them.
